Ok, here's the low down:
I'm a forty something, married mother of three kids.
Technically I'm obese. I wear a size 14/16, XL and in some cases L. I'm 5'6 and 205 pounds. I have blue eyes, big feet(size 10) and a big brain(Chiari malformation).
The latest development....
My heart is being bad. Now, I don' t know how bad, and it may not even be as serious as my primary doc leads me to believe. I had to wear a Holter monitor for a few days because I mentioned to the Doc that my lungs and heart were doing some sort of weird flutter/palpitation thing. If I hold my breath and push down with my diaphragm it goes away. She said it'a probably some sort of anxiety thing I have going and not to worry...but wear this monitor thingy just to make sure. So I thought it was silly and felt foolish wearing scarfs for 2 days in a row(I never wear them) with 6 things stuck to my chest/side and ribcage. Then the phone call comes that I am having "episodes of concern!"
Hows that for a medical definition?!
I'm waiting for my referral to a Cardiologist and I can't exercise until they clear me. SO... in efforts to lose weight I have to go with a diet only.
Calories in-no calories out.
ugh! I'm annoyed and a little irked that my forty something body isn't cooperating. I'm trying to get healthy darnit! I can't do that if the ticker is over ticking. When does the timer ring?
I'm a little scared and honestly irritated. I'd appreciate and prayers you can send my way! A shameless plug at a chance to be selfish.
I hope all is well with you and yours!
